Prayers, services and advice if you cannot get to church.

The Reverend Lesley Goldsmith writes…
Welcome to St Edmund’s. I hope you find the information you are looking for.

Whether you are looking to celebrate a special event, to give thanks for a great joy, or seeking support at a difficult time, we hope and pray that you will feel God’s loving welcome and peace in our church.

I know that walking into a place you haven’t visited before, or perhaps for a long time, can be daunting. Please don’t be shy! We love meeting new people as well as seeing old friends. Everyone is welcome.


We are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults. The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Debbie Watson, who may be contacted at church or by email.
